There are many people not alive
to the importance of oil discoveries.
They look upon the derricks as un
sightly, the product evil-smelling
and the result unimportant.
Passing by what Pennsylv ni.Vs
petroleum output did for that state’s
upbuilding, we have a later instance
of what that product has accom
pli died for the prosperity of South
ern California. The panic of '93 •
f >und Los Angeles at the tail end
of a boom and flattened out. Just
then came great discoveries of oil
in city and country and the city at {
once entered upon an era of growth
and prosperity which has never for
an instance been checked. Within
the ten years since petroleum be*
came a factor in her assets, Los
Angeles has expanded from a pop
ulation of 60.000 to 125,000, nd is
today the most prosperous city on
the Pacific coast. For this result
oil was primarily the moving cause
and the enterprise of the business
men of that delightful city the con
comitant which wrought from op
portunicy success.
Several years ago oil was pros
spected tor east and north of this
city. The indications in both cases
were good, but funds were insuffi
cent and enthusiasm lacking. Had
there been the same interest that
now is in evidence, there can be lit
tie doubt that the country here
abouts would now be studded with
derricks and Grand Junction be
rounding the 10,000 mark.
Cripple Creek, with its wealth of
gold, can offer no greater allure
ments than oil producing area, for
an oil well can be operated at in
finately less expense than mineral
can be mined and smelted. Wells
producing $50,000 and $7 5,000 per
month, wheie in sufficient number
to operate from a common pumps
ing and piping station, may be kept
going at the trifling expense of SSO
to SIOO per month. The profits
are stupendous, and in a genuine
oil belt the output as nearly ever

Every oil expert who has inves
tigated the basin in which this city
is situated has been impressed with
its wondeifully favorable situation
for great oil discoveries.
The find at Deßeque carries out
these theories. It therefore be
hooves us not to sleep upon our ,
opportunities, but to put energy
and ample capital to work exploit
ing, that another source of wealth
may be developed to add to Grand '
Junction’s horn of plenty. ,

It everybody in Mesa county is
not pleased at the confirmation of r
Edwin Price as postmaster, in our *
judgment they ought to be. Mr. *
Price has been a most valuable citi- ,
zen here for many years and de
served better than to be placed in a ,
false and to some extent dishonor- F
r ible light in order to serve some °
political factions disgraceful ends o
It is doubtful if Mr. Price’s politi- ,
cal mentor, Senator Wolcott, would •
have made the vigorous fight in his 1
b ;half that his political opponent,
Senator Teller, did, which is one of
the greatest compliments Mr. Price ,
could have received. i

out ot the newspaper ranks, who J
will miss him from the editorial ,
desk and wish him success in a line j
of work that promises better finan- ’
cial returns. Messrs. Hosmer and 1

A. B Gray is out of the state and
so is not in evidence at the chief
clerk’s desk in the lower house of
general assembly. But in "Bill
Nye” Hamilton he has a substitute
as much like him as a pea from the
same pod.
There is a recognized affinity be
tween oil and politics, which no
doubt accounts for the fact that
about every politician in the state
is now frantically searching for the
oleaginous fluid. Among them may
be numbered such shining lights as
Joe Swan, Milt Smith, Dr. Chipley,
Oil Inspector Dillon, Dave Horr
and a host of others.

Receiver for Zion Lace Factory.
Chicago, Jan. 31 —Judge Tulley l
today ordered a receivership for
the Zion lace industries, and Moi *
Hay will enter a decree appointing
Elmer Washburn to the position of
receiver under a bond of #700.000.
The court, in a lengthy decision
of the case which was instituted by
Samuel Stevenson, a brother-in-law
of John Alexander Dowie, de
clared that Dowie’s church, the
Christian Catholic church, was a
curious mixture ol religion and
business. He held that Stevenson,
by undue influence exerted by
Dowie, head ol the church had
been led to turn over to Dowie
practically everything he had, and
held that Stevenson was entitled to
at least #IOO,OOO from Dowie, or
the lace industries, which he said
were practically the same thing.

The Palisade Oil & Development company was organized for the
purpose of development rather than speculation. The incorporators
who have originated and perfected the organization are men who have
been identified with the development of our country from its earliest
! settlement and their enterprise, their success financially, their untiring
energy and the impulse they lend with an unstinted hand to every move
for the develooment of our country, and betterment of the people, is a
good and sufficient warranty that the present enterprise will be pushed
to a hasty and successful conclusion.
The organization was rather a necessity; the promoters having ac
quired title by patent, filings and otherwise, to about 3,000 acres of fine
mineral la-'ds and knowing oi the presence of oil of high grade, sup
ported by die . ’pinions of such prominent mineralogists of the state as
Prof. Albert Lakes and Prof Hall ol Denver, whose opinions support
the theory that beneath the lower body of shale, found about Palisade
and underlying, the lowest heavy body on the western slope, would be
found the great body of oil, in all probability "gushers,” the heavy oil
shale and formation of surrounding mountains supporting the theory,
the promoters were not slow to avail themselves of what they knew to
be fact as well as theory and organized the present company.
Necessary papers of incorporation were drawn by Judge Marsh of
Grand Junction, who is also one of the most liberal subscribers tor
stock, the documents have become a matter of state record and direct
ors have been elected to do business for the company. One hundred
thousand shares of the 300,000 incorporated for, have t een put on the
market at 10 cents per share and more than 30,000 shares were sub
scribed for during the first two days As soon as the remaining stock
offered has been taken machinery of highest type will be purchased and
work will be begun at once. It is the intention to bore to a depth of
2,000 feet or more if necessary and exhaust all funds in development,
possibly boring several holes.
The company is pleased to refer anyone to the Mesa County State
bank or Judge Marsh of Grand Junction or any leading business man
of Mesa county. It is desired to begin work as soon as possible and
anyone desiring stock or information address R. H. Bancroft, secretarv;
C. C. Bower, C. S. Reed, J. L Oliver, J. D. Secor, H. T. Reed. W. P
Walker, E. E Hampton, all of Palisade, or W. R. Woodward, chief
